New High-Resolution Blue Laser Profile Scanner


The scanCONTROL laser profile scanners from Micro-Epsilon offers superior accuracy and a high measuring rate of up to 10kHz. They are also compact and easily integrated into industrial environments and applications in areas where space is limited.

Bestech Australia announces the new high-resolution blue laser profile scanner to suit dynamic measurement applications, which require a system with high resolution and accuracy. This new laser scanner is primarily used for process automation tasks but can also be applied in production, process monitoring, and quality control. The scanCONTROL 30xx/BL is also integrated with a High Dynamic Range (HDR) feature, which offers additional exposure and control features for generating accurate measurements on challenging surfaces.

This new scanCONTROL scanner is available with a measuring range of 25 and 50mm along the laser line with a capability to measure up to 5.5 million points per second and generate up to 2048 measuring points per profile. This translates to an excellent X-axis resolution of 12 µm, which is ideal for measuring heterogeneous surfaces. The sensor also offers a high measuring speed of 10kHz for dynamic and high-speed measurement applications.

The output values from the scanCONTROL 30xx/BL is available via the EtherNET or RS422 interface. As the scanCONTROL is designed for industrial measurement tasks, it is also available with the optional gateway to enable integration with other popular industrial communication interfaces such as ProfiNET, EtherCAT, or Ethernet/IP industrial control systems.

The scanCONTROL 30xx/BL is also available with blue laser technology. The blue laser diode generates short-wavelength laser light, which hardly penetrates the objects. This provides advantages in some measurement applications, particularly when used in measuring organic materials or objects with shiny, reflective, and highly-polished surfaces. Some examples include wood or semi-transparent objects such as adhesive beads or plastic objects. This laser scanner also sharply projects a blue laser line on the surface and reflect it back onto the sensor elements. This configuration guarantees stable and precise measurement results.
